An explosion on a bus killed at least 16 people and injured 30 others in central China, a Chinese news agency reported. But a Hong Kong-based dissident group put the death toll at 30 and said it believed, based on the damage, that the explosion was caused by a bomb. The China News Service, monitored in Hong Kong, said the explosion occurred when the bus was approaching a bridge in the city of Wuhan in Hubei province.

The U.S. Embassy issued an "urgent notice" on Thursday warning Americans that terrorists from another country may be planning attacks on Americans living in the Chinese capital. The unprecedented warning, which came from Chinese public security officials on Wednesday, caused the U.S. Embassy to issue an alert to the 1,500 Americans living in China that they should take measures to protect themselves, said U.S. consular official Dewey Pendergrass.

The death toll in a dynamite explosion on a crowded passenger train rose to at least 24 Tuesday, and Chinese officials labeled the incident near Shanghai an apparent case of sabotage. The explosion occurred in a lavatory on a third-class car just before midnight Monday on the No. 364 passenger train from Hangzhou to Shanghai. Eleven people were seriously injured, according to news reports. Several observers in the capital suggested that the explosion could bring a further toughening of the government's nationwide crackdown on dissidents, in which authorities announced the arrest of 15 more people Tuesday.

A Chinese company's gambit to drill for oil in U.S. territory demonstrates China's determination to lock up the raw materials it needs to sustain its rapid growth, wherever those resources lie. The state-owned China National Offshore Oil Corp., or CNOOC, reportedly is negotiating the purchase of leases owned by the Norwegian StatoilHydro in U.S. waters in the Gulf of Mexico, the source of about a quarter of U.S. crude oil production. China's push to enter U.S. turf comes four years after CNOOC's $18.5-billion bid to buy Unocal Corp.

There is not much to rue about the departure of Clinton-era national security advisor Sandy Berger from his unpaid, informal advisory role in John Kerry's campaign. Berger has always been a plodder, unimaginative but diligent.
